Feature request from this email sent to the mailing list:
The only problem of using pdf as an image, is that it breaks the
Special:Newimages page, and any Special page or gallery view of
images, because it can't render pdf as an image file.
If somehow you could not have pdf's show up in Special:Newimages (or
similar pages), then uploading pdf's would be great
Essentially, the feature request I think would be to allow one to specify a
collection of file types which could be uploaded (per $wgFileExtensions) but NOT
rendered in pages handling images, such as Special:Newimages, or galleries.
